Rachel Dolezal’s Parents: Daughter Has ‘Some Very Serious Issues’

Lawrence and Ruthanne Dolezal, the parents of former Spokane, Washington NAACP chapter president Rachel Dolezal, say their daughter has “some very serious issues.”

Dolezal resigned her position at the NAACP chapter on Monday following revelations over the weekend that, although she has been claiming to be biracial for years, even appearing in photographs with a black man she claims to be her father, she actually is white.

Appearing Monday on Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File,” Dolezal’s parents said none of their daughter’s stories about being raised in a teepee and hunting with a bow and arrow are true.

Ruthanne Dolezal said they first learned Rachel was claiming to be black when the saw a newspaper story about her in 2007. She has since ordered her parents not to visit her, they said.
